i recently got approved at the rescue here in md, yesterday was the first time i visited and she was the first dog they showed me. i fell in love w/ her right away. she was so well behaved, very calm and friendly. i went there yesterday not expecting to return home w/ a dog at all, but as soon as i saw Lexi, i knew she was a perfect fit for me. i wanted a younger gsd, but she really made me changed my mind. i didn't even have a leash with me yesterday, nor do i have a crate or any other stuff for her at the house yet. luckily her foster agreed to keep Lexi for one more week for me as long as i signed the contract yesterday. so i am just busy shopping for her right now and will have her next week this time.
